"The Everlasting Story Of Nory" In the novel, The Everlasting Story Of Nory, Nicholson Baker tells you the many different stories of the life of an eleven year old girl named Nory. The novel is fiction but in some scenes it seems as if it were not a story that was made up out of a person's imagination. There are many scenes where the young girl, Nory, talks about what she wants to do when she grew old. At an early age she decided that she wanted to become either an orthodontist or a popup book producer. She chose these because she loved the many different designs on her friends' retainers and she really liked to read and make her own popup books. At about the age of 9 her parents decided to move to England and she then thought if she did become an orthodontist she would make a fortune because of many of the people having horrible teeth. As she attended school in England she met a young girl who was very nice but nobody seemed to be very fond of her. For some unapparent reason the young girl, Pamela, was always picked on by her fellow classmates. Later in the novel the other people in Nory's grade level, who were about the same age as her told her not to be friends with Pamela because she wouldn't be very popular if she did. But Nory ignored this and was brave even when she was picked on and she always stood up for Pamela. At the end of the novel we find out that people begin to accept Pamela as a normal human being and it wasn't a bad thing to be her friend. One of the main strengths of this book is that it uses a wide range of vocabulary that is not used in American English too commonly.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Fans of Nicholson Baker will probably be disappointed to find that this book containss aboslutely nothing about sex! The Everlasting Story of Nory is more akin to Madeline than The Feramata, because it is a story about dreaming, wisdom and creativity in the world of 9 year old kids.
The Everlasting Story of Nory is a refreshing reminder of how important it is to stay creative, young, and open minded. Baker documents the life of Eleanor (Nory) Winslow, a nine year old American girl who is spending a semester at an English school.
Like most 9 year olds, Nory dreams of things that most adults are too jaded to consider-- like creating a museum of plastic sushi, or being a pop-up book engineer.
As adults we may take ourselves too seriously, or trivialize the lives of children-- but Baker runs time in reverse and brings the adult reader back to fourth grade, to a land of run-on sentences and malapropisms, where the lives of insects and adventures of stuffed ! animals are more significant than politics or money or other phenomena that adults hold so close to their hearts.
If there is a darker theme beneath this story, I haven't been able to find it. Rather, Nory is about the distinct flavor of happiness that disappears when we become teenagers and adults. Warning: this book may compell you to act like a 9 year old.

Although this author did a great job of writing from the young girls perspective, a plot would have made the book much more fun. Still, the book was time well spent and many of the random thoughts going through Nory's head were amusing. I look forward to reading some more of his work.

I bought this book the way I used to buy Beatles albums in the 60's...what can I say? I'm a fan. So it isn't with greatest pleasure that I report that this book was a major snore...yes, I guess he does write books to put grown-ups to sleep(the fictional father's occupation is thusly described by Nory). I don't want to say it has all been down-hill since THE MEZZANINE but after a sort-of sophmore slump with his cozy domestic second novel, ROOM TEMPERATURE, he did some great non-fiction(U AND I and the New Yorker piece on card catalogues)but seemed to get lazy(or just cynical about what sells)with his sex books. Nonetheless his writing was still great. Now more of his laziness, or just parental goofyness, has lead Baker to take his childrens' language and imagination for this latest effort. I was initially amused by Baker's clever and accurate recreation of Nory's language but as I realized that was all there was ever going to be in this novel, then I felt cheated. I'm a parent and a Speech&Language Therapist working with elementary school-aged children so I'm pretty burnt-out on the linguistic charms of the young and that's about all this book has going for it.

Nicholson Baker's literary abilities are praised all over the place - I'd like to praise his obvious parenting abilities. This book shows that he both remembers his own childhood and is paying intense, loving attention to his children. We get a great book - his kids get a great dad.
This book is insightful, brilliant, etc - it's also USEFUL if you have school age children in your life. When they can't talk yet, we know they're not rational; but it's so easy to forget that children look like they have a lot more figured out than they sometimes do. Hang out in the inside of Nory's mind for awhile, and remember how confusing and scary and wonderful and BIG the world was when you were small.
The book also presents a textbook example of parents allowing a child's good sense to guide her in a moral dilemma. Again, of course the literary value of the book is more important, but how fabulous to read a book with such a flawlessly moral tone as well.
